The Newmar Kountry Klub (NKK) is a social Klub. Nothing more or less. The advantage of belonging to the Klub is to socialize with other Newmar owners. Read my signature, "Nobody Knows Your Coach Like Somebody Who Owns One Just Like Yours".
When attending a NKK event there are countless exchanges of very useful information between owners. An event can be anything from a chapter to the international rally event. Belonging to the NKK allows one the ability to attend any NKK event anywhere and anytime. Go to http://www.irv2.com/forums/f119/nkk-...nts-59849.html
for a list of the NKK Special Events currently available. There are many events all across the country all year long. One also gets a 10% discount on parts purchased at the Newmar facility or at a rally.
The advantage in belonging to a chapter is to socialize with other Newmar owners in the geographic area where you might live. An example is I belong to two chapters. The rally season for these chapters is the winter (Florida). This provides me two rallies per month, in the winter, that I can attend and socialize with other Newmar owners. If I didn't belong to the chapters, the coach might sit all winter.
Newmar Corp, does nothing for the chapters directly. This is consistent with other volunteer organizations. Chapters exist for and by local Newmar owners. Indirectly, Newmar supports the organization that supports the Klub, State, Region and International Directors are provided with support from Newmar Corp. Newmar Corp. provides the staff at NKK HQ. In hard times, Newmar Corp fills in the $ gaps to keep Klub operations operating. Newmar also contributes to the International Rally, which is quite an event.
